1 Roma, 10 maggio 2011 THE ITALIAN EVALUATION POLICY ISFOL, Silvia Ciampi

2 Evaluation as one of the pillars of Italys regional policy Citizen-centered policies Strong focus on essential servicesrather than on procedures & expenditure Emphasis on local knowledge Responsibility to regional governments Links with national policies Greater importance to administrative capacity

3 Levels of programming: a complex framework 7 Ministries develop their own programs Each of the 21 Regions develops its multi-sector strategy

4 Over time, silos have been created Sources of money EU Regional Fund National funds EU Social Fund EU Rural Development Coordination organisms Ministry for economic development Ministry for agriculture Ministry for labour Other departments

5 ….Beyond silos : intentional efforts to bridge gaps & introduce policy dialogue among and within authorities in a new perspective

6 At the same time, EU regulations ask for separate programmes by EU source of money The National Strategy for tried to make the various sources of funding work together through common: Programming Implementation Monitoring Surveillance Evaluation

7 Evaluation policy /1 Evaluation Objects: – effects of a well-defined (however complex) intervention or group of interventions on a problem, a social group, or an arearather than a bureaucratic construct (e.g., a multisectoral program tipically operating on a large area, affecting millions of people) – across bureaucratic borders: the evaluation object may have been financed by more than one source – selectivity: choose to answer defined questions about crucial & controversial issues

8 Evaluation policy/2 Each Region drafts an Evaluation Plan: –What is evaluated (and what is not) –Who (internally or externally) performs each evaluation –When –Organization of evaluation function –Resources (human and financial) devoted to evaluations

9 The National Evaluation System UVAL – Ministry of Economic Development (Coordinates) ISFOL – Ministry of Labour INEA – Ministry for Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies Department for Equal Opportunities Evaluation Units of Regional Authorities Its composition shows a clear intention to work together across silos & involving Regions in a federal function
